Joe Ingles Invites Autistic Man After Being Touched By His Story

 

Utah Jazz swingman Joe Ingles has been a prime example of the rise and high caliber of players coming to US shores from the other side of the world. Ingles has been impressive for the Jazz in these last couple of seasons, and has become a very important player for the playoff team.

The Australian is also one of the players who can get hot at any given moment. Curry, Thompson, Redick, and Ingles to just name the players who come into mind first. Over these past few years Ingles has become one of the NBA’s best shooters and a fan favorite.

His off the court ‘performances’ are even more impressive though, and show what a great guy he really is.

Last year, Ingles, helped a young fan see again after deciding to buy him the $10,000 glasses he needed but couldn’t afford, and now, Ingles invited an autistic man, after being touched by his story.

A couple of days ago, a mother tweeted about her 21 year old autistic son asking his first question ever:

 

“Would someone like me?

 

 

Ingles saw the tweet, that went viral and responded:

 

“Kerry, there is 2 people in Utah that like your son a lot, my wife @RenaeIngles & I! We would love to invite you guys to a Jazz game!plz let me know & I’ll sort it out!”

 

 

The mother was incredibly happy about the support. She responded that her son absolutely loved basketball.

 

 

Last year, Joe Ingles’ son was diagnosed with autism, and ever since, Ingles and his wife have become advocates for autism awareness.
